What to do when staring at some aspect of your "home sweet home" day in and day out drives you to distraction, but a renovation is a distant goal? Band-aid solutions (Also a good tip for renters)!
Remember this tile?
It is now a distant memory, but it and I coexisted for a year before it met its maker. But that doesn’t mean I had to look at it. I covered it with turquoise peel and stick “tiles” from Home Depot. These faux tiles hid the ghastly “accent” tile previously owners had lovingly installed so I wasn’t tempted to sledgehammer the whole room just to eradicate the fruity-ness.
See more "before" shots here. And more pictures of the kitchen now, here.

|Ahhhh, new tile.|
